Why does brave show the page summary on left side of screen?

so I have Brave installed on 2 different windows 10 computers
on 1 computer when I open a pdf file - brave puts the page summary on the left side of screen, and clicking the 3 bar line icon above that closes the page summary

on a different computer when I open a pdf file - brave does NOT put the page summary on the left side of screen. this version of brave opens the pdf files 3 seconds faster plus I don’t have to clear the page summary by clicking the 3 bar line icon

why is this?

why does brave display this page summary thing on 1 computer but not the other?

how to fix this problem? I really dislike that page summary display put it tkaes longer to open the pdf files

here is screen snap showing the page display thing

here is brave version on the computer that shows the page sidebar

Version 1.63.174 Chromium: 122.0.6261.128 (Official Build) (64-bit)

the same brave version is on the computer that does NOT show the page sidebar

how to fix?

I am running windows 10 on both computers but with different updates

thanks

never mind
apparently just uninstalling brave was not enough
I did a “dir/s brav” from top c:\ and still lots of stuff
after deleting all that
reinstalling brave
I had to redo all the settings
and surprise
now this problem doesn’t happen
